Fabrice Laussy give an Evening Lecture addressed to the general public to honor the Nobel Prize in Physics
Post-October 8 Abstract: This Year's Nobel Prize goes to "contributions to our understanding of the evolution of the universe and Earth's place in the cosmos" for James Peeble's theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology and Michel Mayor & Didier Queloz's discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star
The Nobel Prize is also interesting for what it tells us about Scientists themselves
Laussy will give his traditional Nobel Lecture where, along with the most crunchy bits of this socio-scientific celebration, he presents in layman's terms the Science honoured on this year, namely, about our place in the cosmos

Branch talk Electronics in a spin? Professor Sarah Thompson, Department of Physics, University of York 101 years after JJ Thomson was awarded the Nobel Prize for the discovery of the electron, the 2007 Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded to Professors Peter Gr├╝nberg and Albert Fert for the discovery of Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR) in which the spin as well as the charge of the electron is manipulated and exploited in nanoscale magnetic materials
Modern technology also has a significant role to play in the award of this Nobel Prize: GMR is only manifest in nanoscale materials, and the development of nanotechnology growth techniques was a necessary pre-requisite; further, the considerable demands of the magnetic data storage industry to drive up the data density stored on a hard disk fuelled an enormous international research effort following the initial discovery with the result that more that 5 billion GMR read-heads have since been manufactured
